  1. Thanks @eevli for taking the time and subbing this. I've enjoyed watching.
  2. Glad to see this getting made. Looks really impresssive, though likely too much in both size and cost for me to own.
  3. Those are awesome. Very cool to see the full, uncropped artwork.
  4. That artwork is stunning! I'd love to have a print of that.
  5. WOW! So cool to see all the new possibilities, even if it may take Bandai years to release them all. I'm in the midst of a SDFM rewatch this month, so the timing of this display is perfect. Tomahawk color looks great. I'd also rather the Q-rau be the TV version, especially with all the other TV versions shown here, but still nice to see it shown either way. I can't tell from the photo what's different about the GBP revival, aside from TV hands. The color looks lighter, but it could just be the lighting.
  6. Now that they've followed through on the VF-0S and VF-1S, let's hope that this is the next piece that Bandai finally delivers...
  7. Having owned all the original MASK toys back in the day, it’s great to see this line get revived. I went back and watched the first episode again last night. Such a cool show, especially for its time. I think if there’s one piece to have, it’s Thunderhawk - the “hero valk” of MASK. And this new design looks fantastic.
  8. Yeah, just forget the whole “bring them in warm” part and go straight to “cold.” Seriously though, I wonder if he’s even going to be doing much bounty hunting for a while, since his life was opened up to such larger causes in season 2. He’s got to reinstate himself with the clan, for one.
  9. There was also the Megahouse Cosmo Fleet TV SDF-1. It was smaller and under $100 USD when originally released. Not sure what it’s going for now, but probably much more than that unfortunately.
  10. What about just tracking down the original Hi Metal super packs from several years ago? That's what I ended up doing, and there's a bunch on Mandarake right now. The arm armor is not TV accurate, but the color is good.
  11. Really glad to see this finally happening, even if I already customized one from other Hi-Metal parts. As others have said, this will make a good supply for those who want TV-styled super parts & missiles, not to mention side covers. I'm in for at least 2. I do wonder how the color on the super parts will compare to what was released 10 years ago in Hi-Metal. Hope it's the same to match with my sizeable stash of older parts.
  12. I’ve been rewatching the original Transformers series and noticed that in one episode only, Starscream gets a GBP/Spartan-style missile upgrade.
  13. That VF-0S artwork looks sweet. On the topic of the Tomahawk, count me among those who don't really care what color it is, as long as gets made. The blue one that @sh9000 posted reminded me of this:
  14. It's really cool to see Macross shows finally make their way over here! I'll take physical media over streaming any day. Assuming English subs are a given? And I wonder how much money I will need to set aside to buy them all? 😁
  15. This might have been mentioned already, but for VF-0, I wonder if Bandai is going for true 1/100 scale, while the VF-1 is known to be 1/90-ish? Nice to see the mention of the VF-1S with its improvements, as well as the Tomahawk. It would be even nicer if they would give us a preorder.
  16. Amazing work, with an incredible attention to the finest details. I wonder if Kawamori-san ever realized that his creations would draw this much dedication from the fans.
  17. I'm likewise glad to see that Macross HM-R is still alive. I'll probably grab a VF-0, though I'm really wanting those remaining SDFM destroids.
  18. Roy’s Strike VF-1S was shown at an event last year along with a Scout Regult, and I think people suspected it might be getting a re-release at some point. At this point, I’d rather get the TV version, even though I already put together customs from the original Hi Metal.
  19. My thoughts exactly. I wonder what Tenjin would do differently from the below?
  20. Original language with subs is totally cool with me. Part of the character of the show is the sound of the original actor's voices. With other shows, I prefer to listen to the Japanese and have gotten used to reading subs. I don't think I've ever heard a dub that sounds as good and convincing as the original in terms of acting. And that's dialog only. While Mari Ijima and some of the Walkure girls pulled it off, voice actors are often not singers, so that's additional talent you have to hire. I wouldn't want the release of these shows to become held back by obstacles of cost or time.
  21. The guys above pretty much covered it. My son’s a tween, for the record, so not a little kid any more but not sure he’s ready for one of the darker, heavier chapters of Macross, especially when he hasn’t even seen the original yet. He’s also not real fond of reading subs.
